Last year Eric Bischoff returned to WWE in a backstage role to work as the Executive Director of Friday Night SmackDown. Unfortunately for Eric it seems that he wasn’t the right fit for the job in Vince McMahon’s eyes, and he was removed from the position a few months later.

Bischoff is still on good terms with WWE, but he does openly share his thoughts on the current product during interviews.

The former Monday Night Raw General Manager opened up about WWE storylines during an interview with Sportskeeda and he talked about why he thinks WWE storylines suck right now.

“Storylines suck right now. They suck. Storylines are getting worse and worse. This the one thing that I feel adamant about. You look at what WWE did at SmackDown (at) ThunderDome over the weekend. Such a phenomenal job from a production point of view. I knew that WWE would knock the ThunderDome concept out of the park. Better than anybody, including the NBA. I knew they would – because they’re so good at that. What they’re not good at is basic fundamental storytelling. They’re just not.

I love them and I have many friends there, who I love dearly. It doesn’t change the fact that their storyline, the architecture, their approach to stories, their discipline with stories, sucks. Until somebody comes along and takes an honest look at storytelling and the structure of storytelling and the formulas that are used, it’s going to be hit or miss forever.”
